The complete transformation of Barrie from knitwear manufacturer to fashion company continues apace at its state-of-the-art production plant.
The plant has been the centre point for a remarkable turnaround in the firm’s fortunes since being bought by Chanel in 2012.
Ongoing multi-million pound investment in machinery and staff has given Barrie the platform to grow into a fully fledged fashion brand. The days of mass volume production are long gone, with the firm having carved out a significant presence in the luxury couture market.
